Today was my last RE appointment and I have officially graduated :) I can't believe that this has FINALLY come. After all the stuff from last year, I am so lucky to start the new year off right.
Today's scan looked great, still measuring fine and the heartrate was 160 - I am trying not to google it, my doc said it was great.
He will also be slowly gettting me off the prometrium. Which makes me nervous. And here is a confession. When I first found out I was pregnant, I increased my dose of the prometrium without my doctor's knowledge. I was supossed to take one pill in the morning and one at night. But, I was taking 1 in the morning and TWO at night. I knew it was not something that could hurt the pregancy, and since all my other pregnancies I had very low P4, even with the supps, I figured I would self medicate.
And, now, I am not sure if that is what kept me pregnant???? I mean it is totally possible that everything would have been fine with the standard dose, but I did not want to take any chance.
So, I will follow the directions and slowly wean off, but just at a different pace than he suggests. It just makes me really nervous to not be on the progesterone. But, from what I have read, and what he has told me, the placenta takes over very soon, so I really should not have any worries.
I also had to have TONS of OB bloodwork done today at a regular lab. The tech said to me, "Oh, you are expecting" That one word nearly sent me over the edge. Imagine, ME - expecting a baby. Not just pregnant, but expecting!!
And more news, I hate my Motherhood Maternity Store.
